Subject: 'You Don't Know Jack!'
Nurses are always interesting, especially public nurses. I can only imagine that the public nurse was in vogue when checking for TB, and then silently faded away after a couple of years. But anyways, back when they were around, there were films made about them, which makes the subject fascinating.
A public nurse visits a woman (who looks like, of all people, Jane Goodall) when she has missed several appointments. The truth of the matter is, she's pregnant again, the first child was still born, and there's a lot of apprehension between her and the husband about having another baby. The nurse then finds herself in a bit of a dillema, how much can she help without totally getting in the way? Quite a interesting film.
